Saint-Alexandre-Nevsky Cathedral II



The beautifully crafted windows of the St Alexandre Nevsky Cathedral
give a reaching view of the streets beyond.

The windows of this elegant place of worship are most often seen from the other side.

bon dimanche

This is a beautiful Cathedral, Genie...is it the one near Parc Monceau? I remember getting a scolding from the Priest for crossing my legs while taking a little rest on a chair! I'm glad you got away with a photo ;)
Bon weekend,
Bises,

Years ago I attended the funeral of a Russian friend here...a beautiful church.

Joe said...

They don't make windows like this anymore.

A lovely opening to the world.

Enjoyed the link, too, and the loveliness of the Russian architecture. You framed this photo beautifully.

Well done for getting a photo from inside :)
Great framing of the shot too. I love window shots (but am rather bad at them)

Oh it looks beautiful from the inside and out Genie, I love that you managed to get this shot from the inside, I can just imagine you whipping your camera out and...snap!! Happy Sunday.

Simply beautiful Genie!

Interesting that it has clear windows...I would have expected some frosted glass at least.

Mary said...

Absolutely stunning. Just as much so from the inside as from the outside. Wonderful picture. And a good Sunday to you also, Genie. :)

Randy said...

Such beautiful design.

Harriet said...

Lovely window, lovely view. Indeed, a nice space in which to find oneself.

Irina, you are right about the location. It is easy to find with a map but it is not one that you can see from the main street.

This was a "legal" photo. They do not allow photos inside the cathedral but this one was taken facing out and not into the cathedral.

Bibi, I think that the funeral for your friend would have been quite memorable in this cathedral.

Debs, as you know I like window shots as well. Just keep clicking and you will master them. With a window shot you may be surprised at the interesting reflections.

revrunner, it is nice to see you here. Thank you for visiting and for your comment.

I am wishing for more hours than the usual allotment this week and I wish for all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Bises,
Genie
